Track Name: The Rise (Intro)
Intro.
Track Name: The Fall
sweet on her eyes: flutter and refined. allured by her…
when I'm
(alone)
a beggar in your honied-Home

- slighted we fall
under you is the Truth
Under me
maybe I am no use
to you.

you took it too far/
cold.
au revoir
Do you know what you are?

- slighted we fall
under you is the Truth
Under me
maybe I am no use
to you

or am I the mirror you choose?

beauty in the darkened room is everybody else
she is you she is me she.
Track Name: El Dorado
Listen to gunshot! Staccato.
Eyes-wide, loose-gripped, they're living on lotto.
Put you on mercy, might as well be Gestapo.
Through his balaclava he sees El Dorado.

This is the language of treason,
He is the felon, the heathen;
Puts the whole world on his knees and…

Ostinato:
One follows, two follow, they swallow the whole city they swallow.
High off bravado.
Envy (vibrato) buzzes on his skin and on his shadow.

This is the language of treason,
He is the felon, the heathen;
Puts the whole world on his knees and...

Shacked up, locks upon the door.
You wouldn't believe he'll take all your stock and store,
Eyes of diamonds they'll get you in the dark.
Track Name: Counting Sins (Vices Prelude)
Prelude.
Track Name: Vices
Snaking smooth, no trace upon her step; her eyes accept.
Inviting, truly, whiskey-loosened morals - her eyes kept me.

He pats on the back, a subtle attack: he picks your pockets.
He smiles. He spies you in his sheepish grin - beguiles.

I know you know the ravens ain't timid,
I know you know that there's no safety net.
The chance of keeping clear dwindle
And all the lessons that you learned you can't recall.

One time I'm shaking off their webs,
Two times I'm changing,
Now I'm in the middle of manipulating,
Playing their charades and…
It's the devil and the saint kissing shoulder blades.
Welcome to the lions den.

And the vices slip on your tongue.
The vices deep in your eyes.
Track Name: Corin
Winter's low-pitch scream bewitches the road hungry.
Caution forfeited to the wind: searching to begin again somewhere.

Tomorrow finds tomorrow
But I don't know where.
There's something that lingers, I have a feeling it's just you and me.

Treading open miles
Counting moments whiled
Sewn to the memories have been
Searching to being again somewhere.

Tomorrow finds tomorrow
But I don't know when.
Well there's something that lingers, I have a feeling it's just you and me.

The wind goes nowhere
The wind goes nowhere
I take it with me.

These are the permanent places.
I take them with me
Track Name: Anchor
The wind bustles me around, save,
As I muscle with waves,
And I tussle with graves in the dead middle of the sea.
You anchor me.
You hold breathless the ocean floor,
While sky's violence and wanting more,
Tsunami engulfing the shore pulling debris back to the sea.

You anchor me.


And by a feathered-touch I'm stayed.
Track Name: Penny Water
Keep throwing pennies in the water,
*passed down from your mother/father:
Like looking for the heavens
and wishing on 11:11, maybe Lucky 7 is a chance to win a million, wait...

my Will is my religion and my passion is my ammunition, bang! bang! bang!
there goes the competition.
I make it my life's ambition to live off my own volition.

Keep on keeping on
with your pennies in the water

Aligning the stars won't get you very far and your astrology won't save.

Keep on keeping on.
Track Name: Subway Fare (PW Reprise)
Reprise.
Track Name: When Lions Roar
"I'm pushing for you, I'm pushing for me"
Said the visionary, trying to carry the country.
But now the flags half-masted,
Put the bodies up in the casket,
Have a government face to mask it
Here's one for the freedom-glory-basket.

"I keep on for me and you.

I'm killing for you and I'm killing for…"
Bomb never rang so silently.
But I'm getting it warrior-style
Cutting down the rank and file,
It's vile, but I'm putting you all on trial.

"I keep on."

When does it stop? Believe in love.
When does it stop? Does it ever?
Running away, open your eyes,
Tell me your words, tell me your lies,
Look to the skies, but its all in your mind.
Running away, open yours eyes to the love all around.
Track Name: You & Me (Corin Reprise)
Reprise.
Track Name: The Riddle
What matches from clothes to clothes?
What marches to the beat of the drum that clones?
If they give you ruled paper, would you write the other way?

Lo and behold, the people.

What patterns itself to the mould?
What parallels in same forms?
They comply.
Uniform.

Know your role.
Lo and behold! The riddle!

Got to get in, fit in, twin composition, carbon copy, what you're told, fit the mould, turns your gold to grey. In succession, systematic, automated, think you got it? Yeah, you got it?

Where's your faith, your love? Your lies are what is real.

Know your role.
Lo and behold! The riddle!

Who Am I? Who are you?
I don't know, I know I don't know.
$#%#^%#^@#$%#
